Suggested Hotels

If you don't want to read the whole list, just take number 1 (Hotel Mirabeau) or number 2 (Hotel Arlequin) in case you cannot make it to Brussels on May 10. In fact, it turned out that due to a large "Seafood happening" nearly all hotels in Brussels are fully booked on May 10. So be fast to make your reservation!

Each of your dollars is worth aproximately 43 BEF, while for a FF you get 6.15 BEF. Services, taxes and breakfast are included, unless mentioned otherwise.

  1.Hotel  Mirabeau
    18, place Fontainas 18-20   
    B-1000 Brussels
   
    According to me, this hotel is the best price/quality.
    It is a cozy family hotel located 10 min (walking) away from
    the conference room.

    Prices: single  room 1850/2000   BEF
            double  room 2500        BEF
	    twin    room 2500        BEF
     (mention the "Observatoire Royal" to get these somewhat reduced
      prices)
      
    I have an option on 9 single rooms and 5 double rooms for the
    periode May 10 to May 13.


  2. Hotel Arlequin
    17-19, Rue de la Fourche    
    Espace Arlequin - Petite rue des Bouchers
    B-1000 Brussels
    
    The conference room is in the same building as this hotel, so the
    location is perfect. The drawback is that they don't have vacancies
    anymore on May 10, and for the following days only double rooms 
    remain.

    Prices: double room 3600  BEF
    We have an option on 7 double rooms, mention "Observatoire Royal".



  3. Hotel La Bourse    
    11, rue Antoine Dansaert    
    B-1000 Brussels

    This hotel is closer by than the Mirabeau, but it is -basic-.
    It is the cheapest option if you want a single bedroom and if you 
    don't expect much more than a bed. I don't think they'll give you 
    breakfast. The neighbourhood is OK but not really nice looking.

            single room with    shower 1800 BEF 
	    double room without shower 2600 BEF
	    double room with    shower 3100 BEF
    
    We have an option on 4 single rooms for the periode May 10 to 
    May 13. Mention the Observatoire Royal.

  4. Hotel Le Plaza
    A. Maxlaan 118-126    
    B-1000 Brussels
 
    This is the other extreme with prices almost an order of magnitude
    higher than "La Bourse". I didn't have a look at it but I guess it
    is OK. 20 min walk to conference center.

  5. Hotel Matignon    
   10-12, rue de la Bourse   
   B-1000 Brussels
   
   Nice looking, excellent location (< 1 min walk to conference center).
   Buffet breakfast.  No vacancies left for May 10.
   Only a few rooms left for the following days.
   
   tel: ++ 32 2 511 08 88

  Prices:  single room 2700  BEF   
           double room 3400  BEF   
    
   
  6. Hotel Mozart
    15, Marche aux fromages    
    B-1000 Brussels
  
    I don't know what the link is between Mozart and Brussels,    
    but anyway this looks like a reasonable hotel, perhaps a bit
    overstyled. Its location is nearby the Grand Place and the 
    conference room (< 1 min walk). This also means that it might be quite 
    busy/noisy late at night.  No vacancies left for May 10.
